[Familial thymoma and translocation t (14;20) (q24;p13)].


A familial lympho-epithelial thymoma with constitutional chromosomal translocation t (14;20) (q24;p13) is presented: the thymoma and its particular translocation are present in the mother and the two sons of her offspring. The small number of cases do not allow establishing any relation between thymoma and this particular translocation. Concerning genetic counseling, an annual thoracic radiography is necessary for all the other family members, carriers or not of the translocation.
